Encounter: Sir Simon Rattle

This is a bit of a "stretch" since my seeing Simon Rattle was when he was still a small child. My late first wife (Lola) was a friend of his parents, Denis & Pauline. Denis had been a bandleader at Oxford, and was one of those talented people who can sit at a piano and play almost any tune, and soon have everyone joining in the songs they knew.  Simon clearly inherited his father's musical talent; he was conducting major orchestras in his early twenties
